A second federal judge is ordering the IRS to provide information about lost emails by a central figure in the agency's tea party controversy.
At the time, Lerner headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has told Congress that Lerner's hard drive was recycled and presumably destroyed. If that's the case, Walton said he wants a sworn affidavit saying so.
Walton also wants information about the IRS inspector general's investigation into lost emails.
Walton held a hearing Friday in a lawsuit by a conservative group against the IRS.
